Dining Room Tables Contemporary Design IT was capable of getting through sanding the family table relatively quickly, at least much faster than I thought. It was typically the chairs. The chairs, often the chairs, the chairs. I might get done sanding one after which revisit the next one around three days later (or more). It was exhausting, but the saving grace was the Minwax 2 in one stain and polyurethane I chose by accident. I had no clue it would actually make my life less difficult.

I did so the table first as it seemed easier and more self-explanatory than the chairs. I did a couple of coats on the tabletop and also the legs. After the second coating I realized there was not that much of a difference through the first, so I decided to just do one on the seats (also because once again, the actual chairs kicked my butt).
